2) Kathryn Suggs Chance Leonard Scholarship awarded by the Georgia Nurses Foundation

Kathryn Suggs Chance Leonard was the youngest person to serve as President of GNA. Diagnosed at age 16 with Lupus, Kathryn decided she had a lot of living to pack into the time allotted to her...and live she did. Kathryn used the news of her diagnosis to begin, what would be for her, the lifelong practice of converting life’s obstacles and barriers into a wide range of opportunities.

Always a forward thinker, Kathryn worked in a variety of nursing settings. She obtained her doctorate in nursing, married and had a daughter, and completed her professional career as Director of Graduate Programs at Georgia State University School of Nursing. Kathryn consistently advocated for the advancement of nurses and nursing. Through her roles as teacher, advocate, leader and colleague, she had a profound and lasting impact on the nursing profession as a whole. Dr. Chance (Leonard) was in every sense of the word, a truly remarkable woman.

The Kathryn Suggs Chance Leonard Scholarship will be awarded to men or women entering or already active in the profession of nursing who are enrolled in a school of nursing in Georgia. Successful candidates will demonstrate the same integrity, courage and vision that Dr. Chance (Leonard) exhibited in overcoming life’s obstacles and barriers. The scholarship will be administered through the Georgia Nurses Foundation.

This award will be given to a student who is seeking a Master’s or Doctoral degree in Nursing. GNA and GNF Board members are not eligible to apply.

3) Katherine Pope Scholarship awarded by the Georgia Nurses Foundation

With a nursing career spanning 45 years, Katherine Pope, RN, dedicated her life to the profession of nursing. She has been described as "the ideal nurse: a selfless, genuine caregiver who puts the needs of others ahead of herself”.

Ms. Pope believed that nursing enabled her to best serve her country, her fellow human beings and the community. The Katherine Pope Scholarship demonstrates the impact nursing can make to health care and to the community and extends Ms. Pope's commitment to the career advancement of nurses.

A nursing leader, beloved friend and respected colleague, Katherine Pope has always encouraged others to be their best. This scholarship in her name acknowledges future nursing leaders who are committed to excellence in their field and to the care of those in need.
